- A local man has shared some amazing before and after snaps of his once poorly furnished apartment
- The accomplished young man says he even turned down a R3 million investment, but that waiting for success was definitely worth it
- Mzansi took to the comments section, sharing their silly reactions to the post
A local man has inspired Mzansi with some incredible before and after snaps of his apartment. It's clear the young entrepreneur didn't start out with much and even turned down a R3 million investment, but after a few years of hard work and patience the hustler finally has his dream home.
@TloksLepara_ shared the heartfelt post. From the pics, it's evident that the young man's home is not fully furnished, with only a camp chair, television and heater visible in the small apartment.
"This is how my small apartment looked like when I was offered a 3 million for 50% Moja Chicken shares and I still said NO. That time I didn't even have food in the house. This pic was taken on a Sunday when I was calling all my friends to eWallet me a R100 to buy food. BE PATIENT" he captioned the aspirational post.
After some begging from social media users, the successful man went on to share what his apartment looks like in real-time. While some users felt inspired by the gentleman's story, others hilariously questioned the presence of alcohol bottles in the 'before' image.

"His story don't add up"
@QueOrSomething cheekily wrote:
"Asking friends for R100 for food but can afford beer just confuses me! And you're hungry but got time to take pics of your apartment... Idk, doesn't sound like such a hard day"
"You don't have money for food but you have money for Alcohol."
@RamuimaH shared some inconvenient facts:
"R12k sound system. Heater is on. Beer. And you couldn't go and eat at your moja chicken?"
"Being patient is easier when you know there's a struggling phase you have to go through... This is real isht !"
"Lol...but not having food in the house was your choice...Man shrugging Please don't play games, there are people who literally don't have anything...not this by choice of yours."
In similar home news, Briefly News previously reported that a man has taken to social media to showcase his latest win - a well-furnished man cave away from home for 'escape purposes'. Sharing pictures of the interior on Twitter, the man identified with the handle @TruLDN_ wrote:
"My man cave done."
No doubt, the interior looked outstanding with perfect lighting in the sitting room that matched the wall painting and furniture. The cushion chairs and other fittings in the sitting room added to the glamour and rich look of the structure.
Right behind the sitting room is a mini-bar filled with assorted drinks and wine. The five-star-designed apartment got some tweeps day-dreaming; many others hailed the interior looks.
"Throw a couple of more TVs in there for football Sundays. One stays on redzone and the others have favourite team or best matchup."
"Can you imagine you gotta sleep on the couch and acting like she done actually did something lol."
"No sports memorabilia, no neon signs, one monitor... that’s wild."
"Looks a bit too luxurious... no pool table, no dart board.... come onnnnn."
"This is super lit! If I'm having a man cave, I'm definitely having a big Lionel Messi poster up there, idc how old I am."
"Wow that looks great man, have you built it with bitcoin profits?"
